Have any of you tried using a KopyKake frosting sheet in the Cricut Cake?

for the Cricut cake frosting sheets do you take them off the paper backing and use crisco like you do with gumpaste?

TIA, CC'rs are the best!

I have tried using Kopykake frosting sheets with the Cricut Cake. They work about the same as the Cricut frosting sheets. With both, you have to make sure your mat is not cut up (do not follow the instructions on the DVD). Use the lowest setting on pressure that will cut (experiment starting on the lowest, and move up from there). If you have ANY cuts in your mat, take fine sand paper and get them off. The biggest problem so far with the Cricut Cake, is not cutting into your mat, once you do, your stuff starts tearing (due to the air pocket the cut creates). Good luck, and I hope this helps.

THEY ARE THE BEST I USED LOW SPEED #3 IN PRESSURE AND CUT IT 2 TIMES.TRY THIS AND REMEMBER THE SMALLEST DESIGNS ARE THE HARDEST TO HAVE A CLEAN CUT.

I have use Kopy Kakes icing sheets without any problems--even with my mat having cuts in it.

I do not take the icing sheet off the backing. I use a light coating of shortening to adhere and cut as if it were paper--just a lighter setting.
It's actually very easy

I cut the sheets with the backing on. I used a regular sticky mat in my expression. HTH icon_smile.gif
